Russ Smith may be headed for the pros

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- U of L player Russ Smith is leaving Louisville to enter the NBA draft.

Smith's father says the Cardinals' leading scorer "did it all" during his college career.

He says the National Championship title, two Big East titles and an all-conference first-team selection this season completes a resume that makes it easy for his son to take it to the next level.

Smith is expected to announce the decision in the next week.

Draft experts believe he would be a second round pick because of his size and shot selection.

Smith can change his mind and come back as long as he does not hire an agent.
